Crochet Bamboo Clutch

Last year when I was making ornaments for Christmas I bought a whole pile of different colours of cottons. There was one I bought to try but when I tried to use it I found I couldn't use the small hook and it didn't have the definition that I wanted. So it got put to the side and forgotten about.

It's a bamboo cotton mix from Moda vera and I really wouldn't recommend buying any it was awful to crochet with. But on the ball band was instructions for a clutch that would take one ball and I figured would use up the ball.

So I started this yesterday evening and finished it this morning. It was awful working with this cotton. It kept unravelling. The strands wouldn't stay together and I had to keep undoing bits to resettle the threads.

This is the end result :D
I added an edging in red around for a bit of contrast.

I just need to find the right button or bead to hold it closed. It's such a cute little clutch and will be perfect for holding my glasses cleaner BUT I will not be going out of my way to use that yarn again!

Happy Stitching,


  1. The clutch is really cute, too bad you don't like the yarn.

  2. Lovely clutch - shame about the yarn being so obnoxious.

  3. Love it.Just a pity i cannot get the hang of crocheting.

  4. I think that is a very lovely clutch.

    Bamboo (and cotton) yarn can be a big pain to work with, both in knit and crochet. Given the choice, I prefer to knit with it, using blunt tip wooden or bamboo needles. At least then it is a bit manageable.

  5. What a pretty clutch. Sorry to hear the yarn was so horrible.


  6. Good for you for using up the yarn anyway, and you have something lovely to show for it. And thank you for warning the rest of us about the bamboo yarn!


Thank you for your comments I love to hear from you.
